Saving eDrawings as .EXE

Article by Matt Campbell, CSWE updated May 24, 2011


You might have noticed that it is no longer an option to save eDrawings files as a .exe file in eDrawings 64-bit. This is because a 32-bit computer would not be able to open the file.

The good news is that saving as a .exe file is still an option in the 32-bit version of eDrawings, and that if you have a 64-bit version you will have the 32-bit version installed as well.

Files saved on eDrawings 32-bit will run on both 32 and 64-bit computers. Therefore, saving your eDrawings files this way will guarantee anyone will be able to open it.
